Introduction:
 
NFL Blitz is back, and with NFL License in hand. After years without licensing to include NFL teams, Blitz had been forced into changing its focus into the games known as Blitz: The League. Now that its got an NFL Licence back, it returns to its roots. It ditches the steroids, training, and injuries, leaving more room for old school NFL fun. This game plays exactly like the older Blitz games from the late 90s and early 2000s, but with upscaled graphics, online play, new gameplay modes, and last but not least, trophy support. So lets get started on your path to 100%.
 
One of the best things about this game is that it really does not matter what order you want to do things in. Simply choose what looks like the best at that moment and play that. Every gametype is unlocked right from the beginning, so play what you want. If you'd prefer to do things in an order of sorts, then you can follow my recommended order below.
 
 
Walkthrough:
 
Step 1: Play Through The Gauntlet and Unlock all Fantasy Characters.
 
Here you will want to play through 4 runs of The Gauntlet. This will consist of 48 games, which will pretty much get you accustomed to how the game plays and hone your skills before you jump in to online games. In this step you should unlock the following:
  • I'm A Wizard! (B)
  • Monster Squad (B)
 
Now with those out of the way, and your abilities sharpened, its time to hop online.
 
 
Step 2: Head to Head and Blitz Teams - Unobtainable
 
In this step you will do all of your Blitz Battles games and unlock the following trophies:
  • Big Fish, Small Pond (B) - Unobtainable
  • Movin' On Up (B) - Unobtainable
  • Hail To the King, Baby! (B) - Unobtainable
  • Local Celebrity (B) - Unobtainable
  • Tristate Triumph (B) - Unobtainable
  • Nation Domination (B) - Unobtainable
 
Your time spent unlocking these trophies, through either competitive playing or boosting, will amass a ton of Blitz Bucks, which will be a good start on the next step.
 
 
Step 3: Elite League Trophies and Grinding Blitz Bucks - Unobtainable
 
Now you will put all of those Blitz Bucks earned to good use. Focus on unlocking the following trophies:
  • Buy the Power of Grayskull (B) - Unobtainable
  • Winners Can Be Choosers (B) - Unobtainable
  • Stack The Deck (S) - Unobtainable
  • Yoink! (B) - Unobtainable
 
This will take a very large amount of Blitz Bucks, so odds are you will need to grind them out in various online games. After you have done all of this, you can move on to the final step.
 
 
Step 4: Cleanup of Misc. Trophies
 
Now for a little bit of clean up. Any trophies you missed throughout the previous steps should be gotten here. Depending on how many of them you unlocked by accident, this may or may not consist of the following trophies:
  • En Fuego (B)
  • Double Down (B)
  • Squibittydoo! (B)
  • BRAAAAINSSSSSS! (B)
  • Goin' Beast Mode (B)
  • Fast Fingers (B)
  • I Know Kung Fu (B)
  • Safety Dance (B)
 
Upon completion of this step, you should have 100%. Congrats!

20 trophies ( 19  1  )

  • Get your Blitz Team into the Local Elite Battle Board

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Please see "Hail To the King, Baby!"
  • Get your Blitz Team into the Regional Elite Battle Board

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    Please see "Hail To the King, Baby!"
  • Beat the National Elite Battle Board using a Blitz Team

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE

    This trophy is earned through the "Blitz Battles" portion of the game. After selecting Blitz Battles, you will need to choose "Blitz Teams" and create a team. In order to play in the Blitz Teams mode, your team will need a co-owner. This can be an online friend, or a local player, but either way it will require 2 players.

    Once you have your team created, and a co-owner ready to play with you, you will have to begin playing against other teams. You can either try and do this the standard way, which is just simply winning a lot of online Blitz Team games, or get it by boosting. This mode has no way of inviting another team, so if you are looking to boost this you will need to try and randomly match up with your boosting partners.

    When you begin you will be ranked as a "Local Rookie". The rankings progress as follows:
    1. Local Rookie
    2. Local Pro
    3. Local Veteran
    4. Local Elite (Big Fish, Small Pond Unlocked, ~30,000 Ranking Points Required)
    5. Regional Rookie
    6. Regional Pro
    7. Regional Veteran
    8. Regional Elite (Movin' On Up Unlocked, ~72,500 Ranking Points Required)
    9. National Rookie
    10. National Pro
    11. National Veteran
    12. National Elite
    13. Hall of Fame (Hail To The King, Baby! Unlocked, ~128,000 Ranking Points Required)
    Each online win earns you ranking points. Depending on your performance in the game, you will be awarded roughly 6,000 ranking points. Be careful though, because losses can net you negative points. Depending on the loss, you could lose anywhere between 2,000 and 4,000 ranking points. Each rank up will take about 10,000 ranking points. For example, at 10,000 ranking points you will rank up from Local Rookie to Local Pro. Then at 20,000 you will advance again to Local Veteran. As you progress, leveling up will take more Ranking Points.

    NOTE: When you reach the Hall of Fame level, you will be asked if you want to retire your team. Say yes to unlock the trophy, otherwise you will be knocked back down to Local Elite and will need to win another game to advance.
  • Get into the Head to Head Local Elite Battle Board

    Please see "Nation Domination"
  • Get into the Head to Head Regional Elite Battle Board

    Please see "Nation Domination"
  • Beat the Head to Head National Elite Battle Board

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE
     
    This trophy is earned in the Blitz Battles portion of the game. After selecting Blitz Battles you will need to select Head to Head. Unlike the Blitz Teams mode, you do not need a co-op partner to play with you, this mode is solely 1v1. Now all you need to do is start playing.
     
    You can do this the intended way and just win a lot of Head to Head online games or you can boost this with a partner. This mode has a "Friend Invitation" option so all you will need to do to boost this is to invite a friend and let each other win. You get more ranking points for finishing the match but having one player quit still rewards the other with points so you can either just start up the match, let one player score, then have the losing player quit or simply play out the entire game.
     
    For this to go as fast as possible, you should let one player rank all the way up to Hall of Fame, and then let the other player rank up. However, if you don't have much trust in your boosting partner and feel like they may bail on you after getting their own Hall of Fame rank, you can trade wins one for one. Ranking up will take much longer since you are constantly adding and subtracting from your score but this is a safer method to do it.
     
    When you begin you will be ranked as a "Local Rookie". The rankings progress as follows:
    1. Local Rookie
    2. Local Pro
    3. Local Veteran
    4. Local Elite (Local Celebrity (B) Unlocked, ~30,000 Ranking Points Required)
    5. Regional Rookie
    6. Regional Pro
    7. Regional Veteran
    8. Regional Elite (Tristate Triumph (B) Unlocked, ~72,500 Ranking Points Required)
    9. National Rookie
    10. National Pro
    11. National Veteran
    12. National Elite
    13. Hall of Fame (Nation Domination (B) Unlocked, ~128,000 Ranking Points Required)
     
    Each online win earns you ranking points. Depending on your performance in the game, you will be awarded roughly 6,000 ranking points. Be careful though, because losses can net you negative points. Depending on the loss, you could lose anywhere between 2,000 and 4,000 ranking points. Each rank up will take about 10,000 ranking points. For example, at 10,000 ranking points you will rank up from Local Rookie to Local Pro. Then at 20,000 you will advance again to Local Veteran. As you progress, leveling up will take more Ranking Points.
     
    NOTE: When you reach the Hall of Fame level, you will be asked if you want to retire your team. Say yes to unlock the trophy, otherwise you will be knocked back down to Local Elite and will need to win another game to advance.
  • Purchase all Pro Players

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE
     
    This trophy will need to be gotten through the Elite League part of the game, however, it technically doesn't require any playing in the Elite League at all. The Elite League consists of a team you create with players of any team you want, allowing you to mix and match your favorites, or the best, on to one single team. Each of the 32 teams have 12 unlockable players each. In order to unlock all of the Pro Players, you need to collect all 12 standard players on a specific team, then trade them in. This will make the Pro Player from that team available for purchase. There is 1 Pro Player per team, meaning a total of 32 Pro Players.
     
    As stated above, your first step is to collect all 12 standard players from each team. In order to do this, you need to buy Card Packs from the Blitz Store. You can buy packs of 5 cards (2000 Blitz Bucks), 12 Cards (4000 Blitz Bucks), or 25 (8000 Blitz Bucks). These packs will give you random players which will be added to your collection. All you need to do is just keep buying card packs until you have all 12 players for each team. Because all you need to do is earn Blitz Bucks to buy these packs, you don't need to play any Elite League games at all. Anything that earns Blitz Bucks will suffice.
     
    There are several things that will award you with Blitz Bucks:
    • Any sort of Online game. Whether it is Online Co-op, Elite League, Head to Head, Blitz Teams, it doesn't matter. As long as the game is online, you will earn Blitz Bucks.
    • Trading in a full set of players for any team. This will reward you with a bonus of 2000 Blitz Bucks.
    • Ranking up on the Battle Boards in Head to Head or Blitz Teams. Each time you graduate to a new battle board you will earn a 1000 Blitz Buck bonus.
    • Duplicate cards found in card packs (ie. A player you already have), will be cashed in for Blitz Bucks.
     
    Pretty much the best way to get all the Blitz Bucks you need is to just continuously play online games. I'd suggest leaving this trophy until after you have finished the Blitz Battles trophies, since going through those should earn you a large amount of Blitz Bucks you can use here. Each Pro Player, after having been unlocked, will cost you 2000 Blitz Bucks to purchase so you will need a total of 64,000 Blitz Bucks to buy them all, on top however much money you will need to spend on Card Packs to get access to them.
     
    After a single team has all 12 players, you can cash just that team in and have access to the Pro Player for that team, you don't need to wait until you have all teams completed. However, a good tip to make this to go faster would be to not cash any teams in until you have all of the teams completed. Cashing in a team means those players that you traded in can now be re-gotten in Card Packs, lowering your chances of getting a player you still actually need so I would advise you to not trade in your teams until you have them all completed.
  • Purchase all Ultimate Players

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE
     
    This trophy will also be gotten from the Elite League, and also doesn't require any actual playing in the Elite League. Similar to the Pro Player cards, these Ultimate Player cards will need to be unlocked and purchased to unlock this trophy. Just like the Pro Players were unlocked by completing teams of standard players and trading them in, Ultimate Players are unlocked by completing divisions (AFC East, NFC West etc.) of Pro Players. What this means is the once you have all of the Pro Players in a single division, you will unlock an Ultimate Player for that division do you don't really need to worry about doing anything special for this trophy. Once you have purchased all Pro Players and earned the Winners Can Be Choosers (B) trophy, you will automatically have the ability to buy all of the Ultimate Players.
     
    There are 12 Ultimate Players, which need to be purchased for 10,000 Blitz Bucks each, totalling a whopping 120,000 Blitz Bucks in order to purchase them all, on top of the costs of Pro Players and Card Packs, so you will need tons of Blitz Bucks to finish up this trophy. You can earn Blitz Bucks by doing any of the following:
    • Play any sort of Online game. Whether it is Online Co-op, Elite League, Head to Head, Blitz Teams, it doesn't matter. As long as the game is online, you will earn Blitz Bucks.
    • Trading in a full set of players for any team. This will reward you with a bonus of 2000 Blitz Bucks.
    • Ranking up on the Battle Boards in Head to Head or Blitz Teams. Each time you graduate to a new battle board you will earn a 1000 Blitz Buck bonus.
    • Duplicate cards found in card packs (ie. A player you already have), will be cashed in for Blitz Bucks.
    Due to the high number of Blitz Bucks needed, this one will be a fair amount of a grind, and should be one of the last trophies you get. If you wish to find someone to boost Blitz Bucks in online games with, please see this thread: Trophy Boosting Thread
  • Purchase all Ultimate Power Ups

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE
     
    Yet another Elite League trophy that doesn't require any playing in the Elite League. Another thing that will sometimes be found in your Card Packs are Powerup cards. There are 8 total, and once the full set of 8 is complete, you can trade them in to unlock 1 Ultimate Powerup. Now you will need to re-collect the original 8 powerup cards again, and trade them in once more to unlock a second Ultimate Powerup. Simply repeat this process over and over until you have all 8 Ultimate Powerups available for purchase.
     
    Now you just need to purchase them from the Blitz Store for the trophy to unlock. The Ultimate Powerups only cost 5000 Blitz Bucks to purchase, meaning you will only need 40,000 Blitz Bucks to buy them all.
     
    As stated before, you can earn Blitz Bucks doing any of the following:
    • Any sort of Online game. Whether it is Online Co-op, Elite League, Head to Head, Blitz Teams, it doesn't matter. As long as the game is online, you will earn Blitz Bucks.
    • Trading in a full set of players for a team. This will reward you with a bonus of 2000 Blitz Bucks.
    • Ranking up on the Battle Boards in Head to Head or Blitz Teams. Each time you graduate to a new battle board you will earn a 1000 Blitz Buck bonus.
    • Duplicate cards found in card packs (ie. A player you already have), will be cashed in for Blitz Bucks. 
    I would recommend doing this before cashing in your teams for the Pro Players and unlocking Winners Can Be Choosers (B), because once you cash them all in, you can re-collect them in Card Packs, which would severely decrease your chances of finding powerup cards that you need so it is in your best interest to do this before Winners Can Be Choosers (B).
  • Win a Risk and Reward game

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE
     
    This trophy is done through the Elite League. Simply select Elite League, then choose to play a Risk and Reward game.There is no friend invite option, so you can either try and win legitimately, or try to randomly match up with a boosting partner. Either way, this one just requires you to win.
     
    Before you can play a Risk and Reward game, you will need to have at least 1 player card that isn't assigned to your team, so you'll need to buy at least one card pack. If you are having trouble winning, you could wait until you have a team full of Pro or Ultimate players, since their stats are significantly better.
  • Unlock all Fantasy Characters

    UNOBTAINABLE DUE TO SERVER CLOSURE
     
    Fantasy Characters can be unlocked in two ways. You can beat them in the Blitz Gauntlet or purchase them from the Blitz Store for 20,000 Blitz Bucks. There are 12 of them so I don't recommend the latter, since those Blitz Bucks would be put to better use elsewhere.
     
    The Blitz Gauntlet is composed of 12 games. 3 Fantasy Character "Boss Battles", each separated by 3 regular games. This counts as one Gauntlet, so in order to unlock all 12, you will need to do a total of 4 Gauntlets, for a total of 48 games. This will take a fair amount of time, since games tend to last about 20-30 minutes. The difficulty setting on the Gauntlet doesn't matter. Whether you choose Easy, Hard, or anything else, you will still unlock the Fantasy Characters.
  • Catch on fire three times during a single game

    This trophy is very easy and can be done in any mode. You can catch on fire two different ways:
    • Sack the opposing Quarterback 2 times in a row. (These must be sacks, if the QB leaves the pocket and acts like he is going to run, it will be classified as a run with a loss of yards, not a sack. So that will not count towards fire and will reset the fire buildup.)
    • Complete a pass to the same Wide Receiver 3 times in a row. (Incomplete passes, being sacked, completions to other receivers, etc... will reset the fire buildup)
    The easiest way to do this would be to complete 3 consecutive passes to the same receiver. A simple method would be to choose "Da Bomb", move the man in motion over to the left side (LS18x18.png, before the snap), then throw it to the left WR. Do this 3 times, then let the other team sack you to get rid of your fire, then repeat the process twice more to unlock this trophy.
  • Double pass for a touchdown

    A double pass means you simply throw the ball to a player who is remaining behind the line of scrimmage, then using that player, you throw it to another player downfield. This must be done for a touchdown.

    So simply drive on downfield, to about the 10 or 20 yardline, then choose a play that has a receiver stay back. Plays such as Turmoil or Split Backs will be perfect here. Simply hike the ball, pass it back to the receiver who stayed behind, then pass it to another receiver in the endzone. If its incomplete, just try again on the next down.

    This can be done in any gameplay mode.
  • Recover an on-side kick

    This trophy must be unlocked by recovering your own onside kick. Recovering an onside kick from the opposing team will not unlock this trophy. Thanks to TheGary for confirmation.

    In order to perform an onside kick you need to first score a touchdown (obviously). Once you have made a touchdown you will be taken to play selection to choose a play and go for 2, or take the free point after. Just hold + when you choose a play, and the kickoff following it will be an onside.

    Recovering the kick can be a hassle sometimes and may take a few tries, but with a little luck and a good dive, you should be able to recover it. If you don't, no big deal, just try again next time. This trophy can be done in any gameplay mode as well.
  • Ride the back of an on fire WR with the zombie fantasy character

    Before you can attempt this, you will first need to unlock the Zombie. So head on over to the Gauntlet and beat him, or the Blitz Store and shell out 20,000 Blitz Bucks for him. Either way, you need to get him.

    Now start up a game. This can be done in any game mode, but I suggest just Play Now or Gauntlet to make it easier. In the code entering screen make sure you enter the code for either Zombie or Zombie Team. Start by driving down the field to about the 10 or 20 yardline. Now get the other team on fire by letting them sack you at least twice. Once they are on fire, simply get a Turnover on Downs to get the ball to them.

    Now, they will be on offense with plenty of field ahead of them to ensure you have the most amount of attempts per drive. I suggest you choose a play such as Suicide Blitz so that all AI players on your team blitz, and have your player controlled character wait back for the pass. They should still be on fire, so wait for the QB to pass it to one of the WRs, then tail him. Make sure you are close and completely behind him, then dive with Triangle18x18.png.

    If you are lucky, you will dive at the receiver and ride his back for a while before taking him down. Chances are this will take several tries, because sometimes the dive will just tackle the receiver instead of ride his back. If they get all the way to the endzone and score, or they lose their fire, then just start this process over until you get it.
  • Break three tackles in a row

    This one you will likely get by just playing the game. Whenever you have the ball, you can use Turbo ( R2.png or L2.png ) and square18x18.png to perform a stiff arm if the defenders are coming at your side, or a body check if they are coming at you head on. You will need to have a group of 3 defenders charging you head on all at one time, and use Turbo and square18x18.png at the right time to body check them and knock them all down (you will hear a bowling pin sound effect if done correctly.)

    The easiest time to try this would be on a kickoff return or a punt return, since the entire team will be charging at you, as opposed to just a few on standard plays.
  • Enter 10 unique cheats on the cheat entry screen in one Play Now or Blitz Gauntlet game by one user

    This one is simple and very straightforward, but may take a few tries if you aren't able to be fast with some button pressing. There are infinitely many possibilities of which cheats you use, but which ever cheats you use, you need to include the Extra Code Time cheat ( ). This adds precious seconds and makes it much easier.

    The easiest way to do this is to just enter the following combinations. Just press these buttons as fast as you can as soon as you get on the Code Enter screen:












    This needs to be done in Play Now or Gauntlet, in any other mode the codes need to be bought before they can be used, and it wouldn't count for the trophy. If you don't get all of the codes in time, simply quit the game and start a new one to try again.
  • Trigger every power up

    Powerups can be used in Boss Battles in the Gauntlet, or the Elite League. The former being the easier method. When you get to a boss battle in the gauntlet the game will randomly choose 2 powerups for each team.

    Simply play until you trigger both of your team's powerups (done by running over them on the field) then quit the game. Now restart the same boss battle and 2 new randomly chosen powerups will be placed for your team. Simply rinse and repeat until you have triggered all 8.
  • Knock down a player with the Ninja fantasy character's jump kick hurdle animation

    Before you can attempt this, you will need to unlock the ninja first, so either unlock him through the Gauntlet, or buy him for 20,000 Blitz Bucks. Now start a game in either Play Now or the Gauntlet. It technically doesn't matter which game mode you do it on, but either of those two modes will be fastest and easiest. On the code entering screen make sure you type in either the Ninja or Ninja Team codes. Now, in the game when you have the ball as the ninja, you will need to run straight at someone trying to tackle you and press Triangle18x18.png+circle18x18.png.

    Make sure you aren't too close, otherwise the animation will be cut short due to being tackled, and it will negate the jump kick. There have been reports that you need to be on fire for this to work, but I got mine without. Chances are that fire is not required, but makes it easier to complete. If the jump kick is timed correctly, and with a bit of luck, you will knock the other player down and the trophy will unlock. If not, simply try again. This isn't too difficult, but will likely take you a few tries to get the timing down.
 

Secret trophies

  • Do a celebration dance in your own endzone and get tackled for a safety

    This one is very quick and easy. Just start up a game (any mode will do, but Play Now will be the quickest), and on the kickoff when on the receiving end, simply run back into your own endzone. Stand then and use the RS18x18.png to begin a touchdown celebration dance. Now simply just wait for the other team to come and sack you while you are dancing for a safety. If you started in your own endzone, you will need to step out then back in, otherwise it will result in a touchback.
